    OK guys and gals..... I thought I was pretty cool having a jail broken iphone 5.... I hit Reset all and now I have been in the spinning wheel for the last 9 hours... Please, please help. What should I do? I don't want to jack up my phone anymore than I already have. Thank you in advance.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but your only option is a restore, now.

    You can try holding the power and home button in until the Apple logo comes up. This may be enough to reset the iPhone for you. If not, let us know.

    Thank you guys for the responses. The reason I tried to reset the phone was because the lock button at the top had stopped working. Is there anyway to put the phone into DFU mode without the lock button? I've tried to plug the phone into my computer and nothing will work because the wheel is still turning. Anything you are aware of that could work?

    Thanks for the welcome. This is an awesome forum.

    I'm not sure if this will work for you or not but I did find a link that explains how to put your iPhone into DFU mode without a working power button. [HOW TO] Enter DFU Mode Without Home/Power Buttons. | iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch forums | iFans. There are also some good tutorial videos on YouTube that can help you with this as well.
